Creepy Christian Dr on hitting kids referendumb


Did anyone see Breakfast this morning with this Christian Dr supporting hitting her children for ‘discipline’ purposes– listening to her bullshit rationalization trying to justify her position made me wonder “How on earth are you a Dr?”. It’s weird that someone who has an education can still be so blinded by dogma, “Our children were told if I count to three you get a smack, that’s how our children learnt to count”, charming. Her position that it was normal and right to hit your kids and only fringe people wouldn’t lash out and assault their children suggests this ‘Dr’ wouldn’t tip social services off if as a Dr she saw evidence of parents hitting their children for disciplinary purposes.

I love that we are blowing $9million on a stupidly worded referedumb that no politician intends to implement just so our creepy Christian friend has the legal right to assault her kids. Oh well if it makes our fundy friends and reactionary NZers feel like they are being listened to so that the rest of civilized NZ can move on with an environment where it’s no longer justified to assault your children for disciplinary reasons, so be it.

"Our children were told if I count to three you get a smack, that’s how our children learnt to count”. Charming indeed. If that were true I would think it would put her kids off maths for life.

I always found that expecting reasonable behaviour from my kids often meant that they behaved reasonably. No hitting required.

And now I know why I avoid breakfast telly like the plague.

Great how our democracy gets reduced by Bomber to:

Because, you know, referenda aren't there for politicians to be guided on how they vote by the people they 'represent'. We hold referenda so....ummm.... so we can applaud the tyranny of 3 year dictators. Right.

Didn't see Breakfast, not relevant. Labelling people 'creepy Christians' speaks volumes about your lack of tolerance, not theirs.
